the reaction from seoul. an intended gesture of peace in a process that may be going nowhere. the demolition of tunnels at north korea's underground nuclear testing site. it was meant to be a further step on the path to a historic summit but by the time these pictures were reaching the outside world it was already reeling from the shock of the summit's cancellation. from north korea's foreign ministry a measured response calling the decision not consistent with the desire of humankind for peace and stability adding that north korea remained willing to sit down with the u.s. side to solve problems at any time from south korea disappointment verging on the will demand. ask for vice foreign minister kim statement we see no change of

10:05 pm
they didn't answer the telephone they said in terms of logistics alone a it's almost impossible to see according to this white house official how there could be a june twelfth summit having said that the president continues to talk like it's a possibility what they say is it's not important that the date is met but the goal is met and that is denuclearization and so they continue to talk they continue to to work the telephone said the diplomatic cables back and forth in an effort to try and negotiate the terms of an upcoming meeting but for now it seems that the chances of a june twelfth summit are very remote and so what do we know stage of the discussions taking place behind the scenes between washington and pyongyang or any other internet cases that might be involved to lay the groundwork for any such meeting in the future. the issue really seems to be the definition of denuclearize ation it seems to mean different things depending on which side you're
